Re: Culture Shock

bannockburn bhoy Absolutely Correct ;-) but think of the extra rules you need, Probably 8 times extra weight of ammo as they carry 20mm Cannon not rifle shells, new ranges and accuracies for hand held 20mm cannon, would they have to use reduced charges or could they take the recoil of a vehicle moun...

Re: Culture Shock

So you prefer circus freaks that could not possibly get in there assigned vehicles and how on earth you shoe a full Hanomage with such figures, or even the driver of a jeep escapes me! Clearly we must agree to disagree. Why not use 15mm figures and have done with it is scale is of no consequence? :-).

Re: Culture Shock

This is the comparison, Circus Freaks vs Real. The one on the left is a "12" mm model of a milan. The tube is 2mm in dameter, worthy of a demolition mortar on a Churchill. Frankly is barmy and very poor, and dont get me started on the rifle! On the left is a much closeralmost anatomicaly correct mod...

Re: 1/72 scale and 15 mm vehicles

I really depends on use. If the vehicle is remote from its full scale counterparts then it seems like its going for forced perspetive and seems OK to me. What I hate and this would agrivate it, is with figures massively out of scale and close to their vehicle. An arnoured personell carriers surround...

Re: Machine Gun Area Fire

So I have been testing out what I think is a good compromise solution for our rules. Not perfect but gets most of what I wanted with almost no new rules. The rules already had a provision for fixed line machine guns fireing un-observed fire over pre-surveyed lines. This alloweds such fire out to 600...

Re: Culture Shock

I have Hammerhead this weekend but will try next week. But the detail is minimal. Oversized as my figures are, with legs going from 1.5mm diameter to 1mm, detail is not practical. Bad figures have minimum diameters of 2 mm, bonkers on a figure roughly 12mm tall. On the anatomical correct figure you ...

Culture Shock

I have not been playing 1/144 big battles for a bit, the key players have beed 25mm players. So until recently I had not got my 3D printed 1/144 figures out to put beside "so called 12mm figures". I assumed mine would look OK compared to "real" manufactires figures as mine were as close to scale as ...

Re: Different rules

One of tyhe key ossues is how far you can move. I have seen some secnarios fail as the rules in any practical sence, would not allow the player in any practical sence to say, get completley aross the board. A few of ours would fall into that category.
